Recipe: Apple berry cobbler

Dietitian's tip: This fruit cobbler is a lighter, fresher version of the fat-laden, biscuit-topped dessert.

By Mayo Clinic staff

Serves 6


1 cup fresh raspberries
1 cup fresh blueberries
2 cups chopped apples
2 tablespoons turbinado or brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch

For the topping
Egg white from 1 large egg
1/4 cup soy milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 tablespoons turbinado or brown sugar
3/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour


Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly coat 6 individual oven-proof ramekins or souffle dishes with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, add the raspberries, blueberries, apples, sugar, cinnamon, lemon zest and lemon juice. Stir to mix evenly. Add the cornstarch and stir until the cornstarch dissolves. Set aside.

In a separate bowl add the egg white and whisk until lightly beaten. Add the soy milk, salt, vanilla, sugar and pastry flour. Stir to mix well.

Divide the berry mixture evenly among the prepared dishes. Pour the topping over each. Arrange the ramekins on a large baking pan and place in oven.

Bake until the berries are tender and the topping is golden brown, about 30 minutes. Serve warm.
